INVESTIGATING THE ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF ETHANOL EXTRACT OF THE MEDICINAL PLANT RUTA GRAVEOLENS

Journal of University of Duhok (Issue: 1) (Volume: 24)

Ruta graveolensis a commonly used curative plant and indigenousto the Mediterranean region. In the present study, the ethanolic extraction of R. graveolensleaves and stemswastestedfor antibacterial effectsagainst Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.The leaves (60g) and stems (60g) of R. graveolenswere collected;shade dried and powdered using a grinder. After soaking the powder in 200 ml of 96% ethanol for 24 hours and filtering it, the precipitant was air dried and 100 ml of distilled water was added to it. Both leaves and stems extracts showed inhibitoryproperties on gram negativeand gram positivebacteria. S. pyogenesand S. aureuswere strongly affected by the stemsextract while E.colihad the highest inhibition zones among the bacteria which were treated with the leaves extract. The aimof the present study is to estimatethe antibacterial efficacy of R. graveolensagainst bacterial isolates and that could open the possibility for the development of novelantibiotics.

THE ANTIBACTERIAL ACTIVITY OF AQUEOUS AND ALCOHOLIC EXTRACTS OF SALVADORA PERSICA ON SEVEN TYPES OF ORAL BACTERIAL STRAINS

Journal of Duhok University (Issue: 2) (Volume: 23)

Salvadora persica , commonly known as the toothbrush tree (Miswak) , is an evergreen shrub with fibrous branches . Different parts of the tree stems, roots, twigs have been used as natural antimicrobial sources for the maintenance of oral hygiene. It has been found that S. persica has analgesic, antiplaque, anticariogenic and antifungal properties. The aim of this study was to observe the antibacterial action of the aqueous and alcoholic extracts of the stems of S. persica against seven types of oral bacteria. The stems of S. persica were obtained from a local market in Duhok governorate and the pathogens were collected from the laboratory of Azadi hospital and cultured on blood, nutrient and MacConkey agars. The extracts were prepared using Rotary Vacuum Evaporator, followed by the preparation of the stock solutions. Overall both the aqueous and alcoholic extracts exhibited antibacterial activity against all the types of the bacteria. However, the aqueous extract showed stronger antibacterial action against all strains in particular gram positive bacteria. Methanol and isopropanol were effective against gram negative bacteria. S. persica has proved its efficacy as a natural antimicrobial plant for cleansing the oral cavity and can be used as alternative to other expensive medicinal products.
